HC Deb 08 October 1909 vol 11 c2459W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has appointed a British Commissioner for the Argentine Centenary Exhibition of 1910; if so, who has been selected; and what money will be put at his disposal for ensuring a display of British products commensurate with the importance of our commerce with the Republic?


Mr. C. E. Akers has been appointed British Commissioner for the Argentina Exhibition, 1910. He will proceed to Argentina in the course of the next few days, and will furnish His Majesty's Government with a report. I am not in a position to state the amount of the sum to be put at his disposal. I understand that the Board of Trade have been in communication with the Treasury on the subject.
